Now & Forever Still
A Forever Still Novella
Release Date: September 6, 2016
5+ NOW & FOREVER CROWNS
As I sit down to write this review, I feel like I am an emotional wreck. Why? Because, A.M. Johnson allowed me to visit with one of my favorite groups of people, and it just wasn’t enough, and I already feel the need to revisit.
The sentiment in each story from each couple is just absolutely more than my meager words can ever say, but I am going to give it a go.
The Forever Still series was my first from this author, and I not only fell in love with these characters, especially Todd, but I fell in love with her writing style. A.M. Johnson has a way of writing so that her words are infused with emotion, and I absolutely 110% feel what her characters feel. Their anguish, their happiness, and their love is so tangible that the reader has no choice but to feel everything, and this book accomplishes the same exact thing.
Each of these short stories inside of the novella takes the reader into the lives of each of the main couples as the progress in age, which is unique in itself, as readers rarely get to see couples well into 50’s. The reader gets to see babies, and marriages, and kids falling in love and moving away, they see life happening. And maybe it is because I am a parent that it affected me so deeply, but these snippets of their lives epitomized what every couple wants from their marriage, enduring love and acceptance and support, and what parents want for their kids, for them to be happy in life and love. This book truly encapsulates the meaning of true love as a couple and as a parent, and it is utter perfection.
If you have not read this series, you need to do it! You will love these characters and their stories, and you will be moved by them; these are the types of characters that stay with a reader. These people will be the group you wish were real so you can be friends with them, and they will certainly be the friends you revisit, I know I will. This series, including this novella, sits firmly in my top reads and will be one that I return to like an old family member coming home.
